Felt is an intense-looking film that comes from writer-director Jason Banker, and it explores a character named Amy who is a victim of abuse and the unique and disturbing methods with how she deals with the trauma that she’s gone through. This is a movie that deals with some heavy subject matter including rape culture, abuse survival, and male entitlement.
We have red-band and green-band trailers for the film to give you an idea of how this subject matter is portrayed in the movie. Here’s the synopsis:
Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely-costumed alter egos that reappropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him – but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence.
Felt will get a limited theatrical release on June 26th and VOD on July 21th.
